On a recent visit to the Texas Book Festival in Austin, we made stops at some nurseries. No surprise there.
In the parking lot of a nursery, this flaming red Celosia is a magnet. This one is probably Dragon’s Breath Celosia. Celosias are annuals, so I don’t plant them much. I would love to get Celosia to reseed. Anyone know a trick?
An unusual characteristic is that it grows well in arid West Texas and in boggy Houston, which is in extreme Southeast Texas. A versatile plant that is hardy and grows in the sun or shade.
Grasses have used in many public and some private landscapes for several years. Finally, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon and want more in my yard. There are so many varieties available now that it’s difficult to choose.
Every fall the book festival is held in the capitol building and in many large white tents set up on the streets around the capitol. Authors from all over the US and some from abroad talk about their subjects.
It’s a haven for book lovers.
